HAVANA, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Cuban dissidents on Tuesday urged the United States to continue beaming Radio and TV Marti to the communist-run island, despite recent U.S. criticism that the broadcasts reach few Cubans and have questionable journalistic standards.

They said the two outlets, which are directed by the Miami-based Office of Cuba Broadcasting agency and aimed at supporting opposition to the Cuban government, provided a useful voice in a country where the media is state-run.
